US homelessness rise forecast

The US government may have an impending housing crisis on its hands - the likes of the one that hit America after the financial crisis of 2008-9. We speak to the author from New Republic who says the federal government hasn't learned a thing about keeping track of the inevitable evictions and foreclosures. Plus, we talk about the fashion in hiring bikes and scooters – and why some are terribly annoyed at the whole business. It’s been 250 years since Captain Cook arrived in Australia, claiming the country for the British: the subsequent colonial settlement had consequences for the people who had lived there for more than 50,000 years. We assess the impact on Aboriginal people years later. And on World Emoji Day, we ask when is it every appropriate to send your boss a smiley. We discuss all this with guest Roxanne Taylor from ABC news in Australia.

Risking death for a fragment of jade

The world’s largest jade mines are in Myanmar. It’s an industry worth an estimated $30 billion a year for the mine owners. But it's a hazardous living for the hundreds of thousands who scavenge through mountains of rubble in search of fragments of jade. Earlier this month 172 died when one of those piles collapsed. A BBC Burmese team visited the area last weekend - their editor in London, Soe Win Than, shares their findings.

Ertugrul: the Turkish conquest of Pakistan
It’s a story of strength, courage, and the foundation of a great empire. The Turkish TV series Ertugrul is set eight centuries ago, its hero is a tribal leader whose son Osman founded the Ottoman Empire. It’s gripped audiences in Turkey and beyond, and a version dubbed into Urdu is a hit in Pakistan. Aliya Nazki of BBC Urdu is a fan.

My home town: Khartoum, Sudan
Mohanad Hashim remembers the streets and bridges of his childhood in Khartoum, and the military coup of 1985.

Sudan’s social reforms
After more than 30 years of Islamist rule, Sudan has outlined wide-reaching reforms. Non-Muslims will be allowed to drink alcohol; the apostasy law, public flogging and FGM will be banned. As Mohanad Hashim leaves the BBC to return to Sudan to work as a journalist, he shares his impressions on the announcements.

“I am not sick, I am gay”
In many countries around the world, homosexuality is seen as a disorder to be cured. For BBC Arabic, Jordanian journalist Areej spoke to two anonymous survivors of ‘gay conversion therapy’ about their experiences for her documentary.

SAT 03:50 Witness History (w3cszmv4)
South Korea's 1980s prison camps

A so-called Social Purification project led to thousands of ordinary citizens being imprisoned under the military government in South Korea in the 1980s. Under the pretence of clearing the streets of vagrants and undesirables, people were sent to camps disguised as 'social welfare centres' where many of them suffered torture, forced labour, and physical and sexual abuse. Bugyeong Jung has been speaking to Seung-woo Choi who was taken to a centre in the port city of Busan when he was just 13 years old.

Is the WHO fit for purpose?

More than six months after the outbreak of the coronavirus, a team from the World Health Organization will - for the first time - be given access to physical samples of the virus inside China. It’s an important moment for the WHO, which has been accused of providing patchy scientific advice and reacting too slowly to the threats posed by the virus. There has been an especially critical reaction from the agency’s biggest donor, the United States. Donald Trump has begun the process of withdrawing the US from the WHO, accusing it of being under the 'total control' of China and of 'misleading the world' about the coronavirus. The WHO chief said the organisation needs to reflect on its role during the pandemic and has launched an independent evaluation. So are the criticisms fair? And what difference will investigations inside China make now? Is the organisation still fulfilling its mandate? How has it changed through the years and crucially, does it need the United States to survive? Join Ritula Shah and guests as they discuss whether the World Health Organization is fit for purpose.

The online heroes of the coronavirus pandemic

They’re going viral for all the right reasons. Health care workers, scientists and experts have been spreading sound facts and solid advice about coronavirus.

It’s a push back against all the misinformation, speculation and conspiracy theories that have been swirling around about the pandemic.
In this programme we’ll meet four Covid-19 information heroes – from India, the US, and the UK. Each comes from a different background, and they all have different motivations driving what they’re doing online. So what are their strategies for getting sound science to the public? And in a social media world fuelled by emotion, how do they reflect both the facts and the human toll of the disease?

SAT 06:06 WorklifeIndia (w3cszvgy)
Is American education losing its charm for Indian students?

It is generally a busy time of the year for Indian students looking for opportunities to pursue a foreign education. Studies show that Indian students pay about $10-13bn every year in overseas tuition fees, and an American education sits right at the top for most students.

In the last 20 years, the number of Indian students who went abroad has increased by more than 1,000%, according to a recent report. In the US alone, there are currently more than 200,000 Indian students.

But the picture is grim this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. With many universities switching to online education, and government policy flip-flops adding to the uncertainty, is the dream American education losing its charm?

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we discuss how foreign education is evolving, and whether an overseas degree remains a top pick for Indian students.

Global Questions

Focus on America

The United States has a higher Coronavirus death toll than any other country in the world, with infection rates still dangerously high. To what extent can the blame be laid at the door of the White House? President Trump has consistently downplayed the impact of the virus. How badly could that hurt his chances of re-election in November? Or are individual states responsible? After all, they’ve handled lockdowns differently, with some governors prioritising the economy and an early return to work. Has the pandemic laid bare the fractures and fissures in American society, with the poor and ethnic minorities disproportionately hit? Experts claim countries like the USA have been particularly badly affected as they don’t have a socialised health system (26 million US citizens still don’t have health insurance). The economic and social consequences of the lockdown are taking their toll as Covid19 continues to wreak havoc. America was shaken by the death of Floyd George and the Black Lives Matter movement is gaining momentum. Could Coronavirus change America for good?

SAT 08:06 From Our Own Correspondent (w3csz9pq)
Coronavirus halts LA again

California is under lockdown again. The state governor this week ordered the recently opened bars, cinemas, gyms and the rest, to shut their doors again after a spike in coronavirus infections. Hospitals are running dangerously short of beds and there are fears about the capacity of the state’s health system to cope with another rise in cases. California is the most populous state in the US and Los Angeles is the second biggest city in the country. David Willis reports from the place where they’re accustomed to making movies, not feeling like they’re in one.

It is 19 years since the end of war in the Balkans - the series of interlinked ethnic conflicts which led to the breakup of Yugoslavia - and 25 years since the massacre of Srebrenica. Yet, as the anniversary of Srebrenica showed this week, the lack of local recognition about what happened, suggests that the region has not put its past behind it, and is not safe from it. What happened was nothing short of genocide, according to the United Nations. But who benefits from continuing to deny it? Guy Delauney investigates.

Ghana was one of the main centres from which enslaved people were transported to the United States from the 1600s onwards. In 2000, Ghana passed a law offering citizenship to African Americans of Ghanaian ancestry. To mark the 400th anniversary of the first ship carrying enslaved African people to America, Ghana’s president Akufo-Addo declared 2019 the "Year of Return". Many African Americans heeded the call to visit Ghana. Some decided to make a new life there. Thomas Naadi has met some of the returnees.

Italy’s first holiday season since coronavirus hit is now underway. This week there have been reports of tempers rising on Italian beaches as people have jostled for space to set down their towels, with social distancing proving tricky. The resort of Rimini, on the Adriatic coast, had hoped this would be their year to shine the spotlight on their local and world-renowned filmmaker Federico Fellini. However, many of those celebrations will now have to proceed with face masks securely on. Not all seems to be lost for Rimini’s Fellini year though – as Juliet Rix has found.

Professor Malik Peiris

Professor Malik Peiris, a clinical and public health virologist based at the School of Public Health at the University of Hong Kong, is best known for his work to identify the SARS virus in 2003. He resolves to learn the language of politics and economics, as well as science.

“I personally, in the small way that I can, have resolved to move beyond the laboratory, even beyond the health paradigm I’ve been in, and ask questions about the year-on-year economic growth that we have all taken for granted - in nature, nothing grows forever - and I’ve cut my working hours by fifty percent to study sustainable economics”.

Maybe Liverpool isn't real, maybe we just dreamed it

Journalist Zing Tsjeng is on a journey around the UK trying to figure out what being British is all about. After living in the UK half her life, she wants to decide whether to trade her Singaporean passport for a British one. It's a tough dilemma as Singapore doesn't allow dual nationality and swapping the citizenship of the country she was raised in, for the one she now calls home now, feels like a big deal. Can talking to people from all over the country about their national and local identity help her decide whether to take the plunge and become British? Zing starts her great British adventure in Liverpool.

She meets arts writer Laura Brown. Zing's heard that some Liverpudlians feel so strongly tied to the city that they say they're 'Scouse not English', and she's hoping Laura - who lives and breathes Liverpool - can help her get her head around this. Laura explains how Liverpool's rich and sometimes painful history, its underground arts scene - even its geography and weather - have shaped the city's sense of itself as defiantly different from the rest of the UK.

Washington's NFL team agree to change their name

“What story are we telling about America?” – Washington’s NFL team agree to change their name.

We discuss the Washington Redskins decision to change their controversial name and logo following years of opposition from Native American communities and recent pressure from major club sponsors. Mark Trahant - who is a member of Idaho’s Shoshone-Bannock Tribe and editor of Indian Country Today - tells us the name was offensive because “it came from the era when natives were sold by body parts”. He also recalls being told by his father as a six year old boy not to use the ‘R word’ and he believes all teams that use Native American words and symbols will eventually have to change their names. The “Washington Red Tails” is among the favourites to be the team’s next name and we’re joined by Martin McCauley, who owns the trademark to that name along with a host of others. The Washington fan tells us all about his unusual hobby of trademarking potential team names, how he won’t stand in Washington’s way if they want to use one of his names and he explains why he’s hired a lawyer this week.

The former NBA player calling for the current season to be abandoned - Etan Thomas played for the Washington Wizards, Oklahoma City Thunder and Atlanta Hawks during his professional career. He's now calling on NBA commissioner Adam Silver to cancel the current season due to the risks associated with playing during the Covid-19 pandemic. Thomas says of Silver "Valuing the lives of human beings over economic motivations is a concept that is absent from Donald Trump. You are not him." He also tells us it’s “tragic” that Elena Delle Donne, who suffers from chronic Lyme Disease, was denied the opportunity to opt out of the upcoming WNBA season.

2082 miles on an exercise bike while shielding from coronavirus and battling stage 4 bowel cancer - Keith Farquharson recently completed the 2018 Tour de France course on an exercise bike to raise money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. He chose the 2018 course as that was the year he was first off work with cancer and he watched the race live on TV. He says he juggled the virtual race, with working full-time, a young family and having cancer treatment.

We check in on the second test between England and West Indies. Former West Indies T20 captain Carlos Brathwaite joins us to discuss the latest action in the test, the series so far and living in a bio-secure bubble in order to be at the ground.

Following a big week off the pitch for Manchester City we’re joined by broadcaster Natalie Paweleck to discuss the club’s FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal, the clubs hopes of ending this season with three trophies and if their victory at CAS could see Pep Guardiola extend his stay as manager.

And this week’s Sporting Witness tells the story of David Beckham signing for LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer back in 2007.

DNA and me

Want to know who you really are? Take an at-home DNA test, just like over 26 million others have around the globe. But the question is: why?

For many, it’s just a bit of fun; for others it might be for medical insight. But for everyone, it promises to tell you who you really are – and for many, those results might come as a surprise. For BBC reporter Sophia Smith Galer and her father, an innocent at-home kit led to a series of shocking discoveries about their family.

From discovering her true biological grandfather to a superstar relative, understanding their family background won’t ever be the same again. With so many stories like theirs emerging around the globe, are at-home DNA test kits now the ultimate palm-reader, setting the paths for our future and sense of sef? Do we assume too much of what is still early science – and how much is our identity, really, controlled by our genes anyway?

Sophia explores what this new scientific determination offers, and what other stories that are emerging around the world like her and her father’s tell us about how we build a sense of identity today in 2020.

'I get scared' with Azekel and Yukimi Nagano

Nigerian-born songwriter, producer, and musician Azekel welcomes Yukimi Nagano from Little Dragon, Kwesi Arthur, and Shab.
Together, they talk about why it’s tricky writing with people you don’t know, what it’s like working with big names, and how important it is to express identity in music.

Azekel has collaborated with the likes of Gorillaz, Massive Attack, GAIKA, and Grammy-winning producer Om’Mas Keith (who’s worked with Frank Ocean and Anderson .Paak). Prince also tweeted about one of his songs, and Grace Jones is a fan. The lead singer of Swedish band Little Dragon, Yukimi Nagano has a Swedish-American mother and a Japanese father. The band are back with a new record called New Me, Same Us. Kwesi Arthur is a 25-year-old rapper and musician from Tema, Ghana. He initially wanted to be a footballer but was inspired to pursue a career in music after listening to Drake’s album Thank Me Later. And Shab is an Iranian singer-songwriter who is one of 13 brothers and sisters, a refugee now based in America. Her debut album is due later this year and the first track from it, Spell On Me, is produced by Grammy-winning producer Damon Sharpe (Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez). She describes the track as a “disco ode to female wildness”.

Embankment baby

Tony May was only weeks old when he was abandoned as a baby on the Victoria Embankment in London in 1942. There was no clue to who he was or why he was left by the river Thames in the middle of World War Two. Raised by loving adopted parents who named him, Tony has never been able to discover the identity of his birth parents. Now in his 70s, Tony may finally be able to solve the mystery thanks to advances in DNA testing and painstaking detective work by genealogist Julia Bell. But this type of search is also not without its risks as there is no telling what secrets may be uncovered.

Will Tony be happy with the answers he finds? The popularity of home DNA testing has exploded in recent years as people around the world rush to find out more about their family history. Global test kit sales are predicted to hit 100 million by 2021, and as more people add to these huge online databases it is easier than ever to unearth information about the past. And we may not be prepared for the surprises and family secrets that await us.

How to stop murder

How can we reduce murder rates? Homicide is frequent in some countries, rare in others. The countries in which the homicide rate is very high include El Salvador and Honduras. The countries in which the murder rate is very low include Japan and Norway. The homicide rate in El Salvador is 100 times worse than the homicide rate in Norway. So what explains this extraordinary difference? Susanne Karstedt is a German-born criminologist who researches homicide around the world. She offers a surprising answer.

Roxane Gay: Writing the personal and political

This week we’re celebrating writing from some of the world’s leading Black writers.

The novelist, essayist and cultural commentator Roxane Gay on the political and personal power of writing. Roxane reflects on the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, cancel culture and how publishing needs to change to become an industry that celebrates all voices.

We hear from two short story writers each offering us a glimpse of very different sides of Africa. Tanzanian author Erica Sugo Anyadike charts the rise to power of an African President’s wife while Namibian writer Rémy Ngamije follows the daily routine of a group of homeless people in the suburbs of Windhoek. Both stories are shortlisted for the AKO Caine Prize for African Writing.

When British writer Candice Brathwaite couldn’t find any books about Black British motherhood she could relate to, she decided to write her own. Candice tells us about her best-selling new book I Am Not Your Baby Mother.

Plus: Are there poems that you return to again and again? The pioneering Jamaican dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson explains what Martin Carter’s Poems of Succession mean to him.

What the sediment revealed in Lebanon

The discovery of a mysterious delivery of defective, sediment-heavy fuel intended to generate electricity in Lebanon has sparked a huge scandal in the country. More than two dozen people, including senior officials, have been charged with various alleged crimes including bribery, fraud, money-laundering and forging documents. Lebanon has already been in uproar since last autumn, with hundreds of thousands of people involved in street protests demanding the overthrow of the entire political elite – and now the country’s suffering its worst economic crisis in decades. The national currency has collapsed and more than a third of the workforce is unemployed. Electricity shortages – long a problem in Lebanon - have become still more acute, with whole towns plunged into darkness for long periods – and the row over the suspect oil delivery has exacerbated the problem. Now the investigation into the tainted fuel has raised questions about the original deal to import heavy fuel oil – and Lebanese hope it will eventually help explain why they’ve suffered black-outs for so long. Did officials try to cover up the presence of sediment in the shipment? How did the original much-criticised 2005 fuel contract come about? And what do the revelations tell us about the shadowy world of oil trading that the world relies on? Reporters Tim Whewell and Mohamad Chreyteh investigate.

The divinity of Haile Selassie

How did the Ethiopian King, Haile Selassie - who lived a life of luxury whilst his country suffered a deep famine - become the god for the Rastafari community? To millions he was a leader, to many others he was an oppressor, but to a small worldwide community known as the Rastafari he is divine and the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. Now, 70 years after Haile Selassie was crowned as leader of Ethiopia, Dr Robert Beckford explores the religious, political and social dynamic that propelled a whole community to worship Selassie as a living god.

He investigates the controversy in Ethiopia about Salassie’s godly status leading to recent destruction of a monuments of him and as the Rastafari community grapples with falling numbers, Beckford meets the man trying to re-energise the religion and campaigning to have Selassie made a saint in the Ethiopian Church.

But for many Rastafarians, bestowing sainthood on their spiritual leader won’t change anything. He is, to them, simply the messiah. But how did this adoration come to be?

South Africa’s alcohol ban

For the second time during its Covid-19 outbreak, South Africa has decided to ban sales of alcohol. How does that have an impact on the workload of doctors in hospitals treating coronavirus patients? We hear their conversation.

In Colombia, the economic impact of the pandemic is so desperate in poorer neighbourhoods that some people are hanging red flags outside their homes as a cry for help. We speak to four women in Colombia about the challenges the country is facing, including the plight of migrants from Venezuela.

Bergamo in Italy was once at the epicentre of the global outbreak as coronavirus spread into Europe. But after 137 days, the intensive care unit at one of the main hospitals now has no Covid-19 patients. We speak to the doctor in charge about what that feels like and how his team has coped with the past four months.

Negotiating peace

What happens when women try to hammer out a peace deal? How does it differ from the way men do it? According to the United Nations, fewer than 3% of signatories to peace agreements are women. We meet two women who hope to change that. They made history in Northern Ireland and in Colombia by bringing the gender issue to the forefront of the peace process.

Monica McWilliams is a Northern Irish peace negotiator who played a key role in the Good Friday Agreement of 1998, which brought an end to the Troubles. Monica co-founded the Northern Ireland Women's Coalition in order to get female representatives at the negotiating table. She was subsequently involved in the implementation of the agreement as head of the country's Human Rights Commission. She now advises women around the world on how to negotiate peace deals in countries such as Syria and Myanmar.

Hilde Salvesen was part of Norwegian team which facilitated the recent peace negotiations in Colombia between the government and Farc rebels - the first of its kind to include a gender subcommittee to address the needs of women in the peace process. Hilde developed her strong understanding of Latin America when she travelled there as a student, and witnessed conflict first-hand in Guatemala and El Salvador. She currently works at the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights, part of the University of Oslo.

The Pandemic that Changed the World

Remedies: The pandemic that changed the world

How should governments respond to the pandemic? The Covid-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc both to health systems and economies. Above all it has served to expose inequalities both within nations and between them. Hardest hit are countries in the developing world, where government finances do not permit the level of support to citizens or the private sector that has been provided by richer governments. Ian Goldin, professor of globalisation and development at Oxford University, sees the crisis as marking a turning point in relations between the state and the private sector. Even so, he asks whether governments are doing enough to address the economic impact of the pandemic and the resulting inequalities. He hears powerful testimony from his guests who include the economist Joseph Stiglitz, novelist and activist Arundhati Roy, Achim Steiner, the head of the United Nations Development Programme, and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the chair of GAVI, the vaccine alliance.

Asma Khan: My life in five dishes

When Asma Khan was born it was said her mother cried, but not tears of joy. As a second daughter born in 1960s India, Asma felt she was a disappointment, even a burden, because she could not inherit and would cost her family a fortune in dowries. But she went on to defy those low expectations and open one of London’s most sought-after restaurants.

Asma tells us how she could barely boil an egg when she first got married and moved to England, about the intense loneliness she felt so far from home, and how the smell of paratha convinced her that the only way to recover was to learn how to cook.

The Darjeeling Express founder describes the restaurant’s humble beginnings as a supper club in her London flat, why it has always had an all-female kitchen, and her plans to use food to empower female refugees and prostitutes.

This programme was first broadcast in January 2020.

Chaucer, father of English poetry

Geoffrey Chaucer has been called the father of English poetry and the greatest poet in English before Shakespeare. He is best known for The Canterbury Tales, stories told by a band of pilgrims on their way from London to the shrine of Thomas Becket who was murdered in Canterbury Cathedral two centuries before. Chaucer’s was an age of plague, war and revolt and his pilgrims bring insight into the life and values of those tumultuous times, from the bawdy Miller and the earthy Wife of Bath to the corrupt Pardoner and the Knight whose chivalry was increasingly out of step with the times.

Bridget Kendall explores the range of Chaucer’s world with Emily Steiner, Professor of English at University of Pennsylvania; Mary Flannery, Professor of Medieval English Studies at Bern University; and Anthony Bale, Professor of Medieval Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London.

How is human sound affecting sealife?

Think of the oceans and an empty and peaceful expanse relatively untouched by humankind might come to mind. But is this peace an illusion? CrowdScience listener Dani wants to know if the noise of shipping and other human activity on the oceans is impacting on sea life.

To find out, Marnie Chesterton takes a deep dive to learn how marine animals have evolved to use sound; from navigating their environments to finding a mate or hiding from prey. She then speaks to a scientist who is using acoustic observatories to track the many ways human activity - like sonar and shipping - can interfere.

Marnie virtually visits a German lab which tests the ears of beached whales, dolphins and seals from around the world to try and ascertain whether they suffered hearing damage, and what might have caused it. What other smaller creatures are negatively impacted by underwater noise? Marnie learns that acoustic trauma is more widespread than first thought.

As human life continues to expand along ocean waters, what is being done to reduce the impact of sound? Marnie meets some of the designers at the forefront of naval architecture to see how ship design, from propellers to air bubbles and even wind powered vessels can contribute to reducing the racket in the oceans.

Presented by Marnie Chesterton.

Sandra Magnus is a US astronaut with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and is now the executive director of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Sandra always wanted to become an astronaut and has had a lifelong passion for science and exploring how the world works. On the space station she says that every day is about trouble-shooting, and sometimes it doesn't seem very organised, there is a lost and found plastic bag, "I always thought that was rather amusing because that means there were things on the station that were missing parts".

Samantha Cristoforetti made history when she became the first person to make an espresso in space. "We got to try the first freshly brewed espresso coffee in space" she says proudly. Born in Milan and raised in the province of Trentino in Itlay, Samantha speaks four languages including Russian. She has a second degree in aeronautical sciences and a masters in mechanical engineering. She is a captain in the Italian air force, a qualified jet-fighter pilot and has been an astronaut with the European Space Agency since 2009, the first Italian woman to take the role.

The secret surrogate

“Ana” (not her real name) lives in Georgia and is a single mother with two children of her own. She has also given birth to two other children for couples who couldn’t carry them themselves. In return, she received a payment. In Georgia, commercial surrogacy is legal but it carries a stigma so great that Ana didn’t even tell members of her own family what she was doing. She spent the final months of her pregnancy almost entirely behind closed doors. Ana recently gave birth to a baby boy, the son of Patrick and Enitan, a couple from Zimbabwe and Nigeria respectively, who now live in Canada.

Mya Rose Craig is sometimes known as “Birdgirl”. The first picture of her birdwatching, with a lot of parental encouragement, was taken when she was just 9 days old. Her enthusiasm for spotting birds has landed her in the history books. At just 18, she is the youngest person to have spotted half of the world’s known bird species. She has also become a powerful advocate for more diversity in conservation.

UK to change extradition deal with Hong Kong

The British prime minister, Boris Johnson, says the country's extradition arrangements with Hong Kong will be changed to reflect concerns about the security law imposed by China. But Mr Johnson stressed Britain must take a calibrated approach and he would not become automatically anti-China on every issue.

Also on the programme: Preliminary trials in Britain of a new treatment for Covid-19 suggest it could significantly cut the risk of dying in hospital; and can European Union leaders break the deadlock on a contentious coronavirus recovery fund?

Coronavirus conversations: Closer to a vaccine?

Early trials show a coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford appears safe and trains the immune system. But it's still too soon to know if it will be enough to offer protection and larger trials are now taking place. We'll get your questions answered by our health correspondent and one of our regular experts, Dr Eleanor Murray from Boston University. You can send your questions on WhatsApp +447730751925 or tweet us @bbcworldservice.

Also, we speak to the mother of Elijah McClain, a 23-year-old black man who was killed after an encounter with police in Colorado last year. He had been put in a chokehold and injected with ketamine. No-one was punished over what happened. Following the outcry over the killing of George Floyd, a petition of more than 2 million signatures has led to the state of Colorado re-examining the Elijah McClain case. His mum, Sheneen McClain, tells us about what happened to him.

Jane Goodall

Jane Goodall, aged 86, reflects on the years she spent living with the wild chimpanzees in Gombe in eastern Tanzania and tells Jim Al Khalili why she believes the best way to bring about change is to ‘creep into people’s hearts’. Jane shot to fame when she appeared on the cover of National Geographic magazine in 1963 and appeared in a documentary film directed by Orson Welles. Her ground breaking observations introduced us to the social and emotional lives of wild chimpanzees and changed our view of what it is to be human. Images of her younger self play wrestling with baby chimps make Jane feel slightly apprehensive now but at the time she didn’t give it a second thought. However, she did take care to protect her young son. Seeing distressing footage of chimps who were living in captivity, she gave up fieldwork to become an activist, working to liberate chimpanzees that were being used for medical research or sold for meat or as pets, and setting up chimp sanctuaries for animals that were no longer able to live in the wild. For the last thirty years, she has campaigned gently but relentlessly to protect wild animals and wild places, touring the world and performing on stage in front of huge audiences. Her global youth programme, Roots and Shoots has inspired and empowered millions of people to understand and respect nature, leading some to call her ‘the mother Theresa of the environment’. A label she dislikes.

The confined: A story of hidden children

In 1942 in Nazi occupied France Jews were hunted and those helping them could be sent to concentration camps. Despite the dangers a Catholic nun took a stand that saved the lives of 82 Jewish children.

Back then Capdenac was a small, picturesque town in the south of France, around 140 miles north of Toulouse. But it was also a strategic military location for the Germans because of its railway junction - not a place you would expect to find a group of nuns hiding Jewish children. Led by Sister Denise Bergon they hid the children for two years in the convent boarding school of Notre Dame de Massip. Out of around 15 nuns, only four knew the identities of the children taking shelter.

Three survivors talk of their unique bond with Sister Denise and how they escaped the clutches of French collaborators and an SS Division which would become notorious for its massacres in the area. Sisters Annie Beck and Helene Ulrich, and Albert Seifer speak of the confinement that changed their lives forever and the love that saved them. Later honoured as one of ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ by the Israeli Holocaust Memorial Yad Vashem Denise Bergon decided not to become a bystander.

Presenter Alice Doyard met the survivors in France and tells the story of the woman they remember forever as “Our Mother Of The War”.

Life-saving surgery, but not by a doctor

More than five billion people around the world don’t have access to safe, affordable surgical care. It has been a big problem in Ethiopia where most specialist doctors are concentrated in the cities, contributing to high rates of maternal mortality.

In 2009 the Ethiopian government began training Integrated Emergency Surgical Officers. Health workers, such as nurses and midwives, are taught to perform emergency operations in remote, rural clinics where there are no surgeons. It was the first programme of its kind and is seen as a model for other developing countries.

More than 800 surgical officers have now completed the three-year Masters programme and are performing hundreds of caesareans and other emergency procedures each year.

People Fixing The World follows one of them, Seida Guadu, as she operates to try to save the lives of a mother and her unborn child.

Janet Echelman: Bending Arc

The artist and sculptor Janet Echelman works on huge pieces of public art that combine high tech design, history and visual imagination to soar above the heads of the public and interact with the environment. Her latest, Bending Arc, has been waiting out the Covid crisis before finally being unveiled to the public in St Petersburg Florida.

Spanning 427 feet, and held by some 180 miles of twine, this giant net sculpture has needed a team of architects, model makers, computer scientists, aeronautical and structural engineers - all led by Echelman - to create a billowing, multi-coloured artwork that will cast shade and inspire the pier walkers of St Petersburg. It is also an artwork that draws directly on Echelman’s own family history in ready-to-wear fashion.

Andrea Shea has been documenting Echelman's creative processes and now, all that awaits, is the grand opening scheduled for July when the artist’s imagination will billow and dazzle in the sea breeze.

Presented by Andrea Shea
Produced by Mark Burman for the BBC World Service

Mean streets to sporting elite: the build up

Arshay Cooper likens his childhood on the westside of Chicago to "what soldiers experience in war." His father absent, his mother battling an addiction to drugs, Arshay and his three siblings struggled to put food on the table, or to heat their tiny one-bedroom apartment.

From a young age Arshay was aware that in his neighbourhood, “the big question wasn’t what college you were going to go to, but what gang you were going to join.” Still, he knew the life of a gang member wasn't for him.

So when he came across an unusual sight in his school cafeteria one day - a rowing boat with a notice: "Join the Crew Team" - he was intrigued, but wary. The next day the boat was still there, and this time they were offering free pizza to anyone who signed up. The decision to join would lead Arshay to become captain of the first ever African-American high school rowing team in the US, take him and his team-mates into the elite, white-dominated world of amateur rowing - and change their lives for ever.

Arshay Cooper has written a memoir, A Most Beautiful Thing, which has been turned into a film of the same name. The memoir is available now, the film will be released on 31 July.

EU agrees €750bn for coronavirus recovery deal

There were splits in the 27 member bloc between countries hardest hit by the virus and so-called "frugal" members concerned about costs. Also: a new report has found that successive governments failed to protect British democracy from Russian political interference; and how is Winston Churchill’s legacy viewed in India?

EU reaches ‘pivotal’ coronavirus recovery deal

EU leaders have struck a deal on a huge coronavirus recovery package after days of talks. The €750bn deal is split almost evenly between non-repayable grants and low-interest loans, and Sam Fleming, Brussels bureau chief of the Financial Times explains how it works. The Netherlands is one of several so-called ‘frugal’ nations, which aimed to restrict the scope of grants, and we get a reaction to the measures from Dutch member of parliament Anne Mulder. And former Italian prime minister Enrico Letta gives us his response. Also in the programme, an influential British parliamentary committee has called for tougher action on the part of the British government against websites and social media platforms that allow dangerous misinformation to spread about the coronavirus. We find out what sort of misinformation campaigns are causing concern from Julian Knight MP, chair of the committee. Plus, as politicians talk of the importance of a green recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we consider what that might look like with Sir Tim Smit, co-founder of the Eden Project visitor attraction in Cornwall.

Covid 19: Mapping changing sentiment in tweets

Using machine learning, researchers analysed 30 million English language tweets from across the world to track the changing global sentiment as the Covid-19 pandemic spread. Lead author of the study, professor May Lwin at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore explains how machine learning found that sentiments of fear in the early months of the pandemic are now outnumbered by anger and hope.

Researcher Aretha Mare, from The Next Einstein Forum in Rwanda says the pandemic has put a renewed focus on home grown African initiatives involving Artificial intelligence. Already some novel approaches to testing and tracing have been developed. These could have global impact.

The pandemic has made weather forecasting less accurate. Aircraft help forecasters gather changes in data such as temperature, humidity and pressure during the course of a flight. Environmental researcher, Ying Chen explains how fewer commercial flights during the pandemic have affected the amount of data gathered by forecasters.

EU reaches ‘pivotal’ coronavirus recovery deal

EU leaders have struck a deal on a huge coronavirus recovery package after days of talks. The €750bn deal is split almost evenly between non-repayable grants and low-interest loans, and Sam Fleming, Brussels bureau chief of the Financial Times explains how it works. The Netherlands is one of several so-called ‘frugal’ nations, which aimed to restrict the scope of grants, and we get a reaction to the measures from Dutch member of parliament Anne Mulder. And former Italian prime minister Enrico Letta gives us his response. Also in the programme, an influential British parliamentary committee has called for tougher action on the part of the British government against websites and social media platforms that allow dangerous misinformation to spread about the coronavirus. We find out what sort of misinformation campaigns are causing concern from Julian Knight MP, chair of the committee. Plus, as politicians talk of the importance of a green recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we consider what that might look like with Sir Tim Smit, co-founder of the Eden Project visitor attraction in Cornwall.

The Pandemic that Changed the World

Rethinking: The Pandemic that changed the world

What will the world look like post-Covid? In an age of increasingly inward focus can a spirit of multilateralism prevail to meet the challenges posed by the reconstruction of national economies as well as the needs of poorer countries and the international organisations? And does the post-Coronavirus moment provide an opportunity to think differently about other global challenges, the foremost being climate change? Will we be able to “build back better”? Ian Goldin, Oxford University’s professor of globalisation and development draws on his experience as economic advisor to Nelson Mandela and vice president at the World Bank to argue that the gravest threat to humanity in a generation could be turned into an opportunity. But the challenges are many. He discusses them with - among others - pandemic expert Larry Brilliant; Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz; the editor of The Economist, Zanny Minton Beddoes; and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the chair of GAVI, the vaccine alliance.

If Covid-19 spreads across Africa, it could be a catastrophe. Its health systems are already under strain and could buckle under more pressure.

Coronavirus: A killer blow to US healthcare?

The coronavirus pandemic is stretching the US healthcare system to breaking point, with tens of millions of people losing their employment-related coverage. One such person is Susan, a breast cancer survivor who has had to avoid vital check-ups after being made redundant as a bartender in New York. And there are many more like her. Kaiser Family Foundation Data Scientist Cynthia Cox explains how difficult it is to know how many people are actually without healthcare right now. Dr Adam Gaffney, a pulmonary and critical care doctor and instructor at Harvard Medical School says the insurance-led model already was in need of a drastic overhaul, while Mary Grealy of the Healthcare Leadership Council counters that the system does still work and offers greater choice to the consumer. And LaRay Brown, who leads the One Brooklyn Health System, describes how the pandemic is having a devastating effect on hospitals’ finances. Will the US health system stand up to the strain of Covid-19, and its economic disruption?

The struggle to save Borneo's rainforests

The rainforests of Sarawak in Malaysia on the island of Borneo are some of the richest and most biodiverse ecosystems on earth - but for decades they've been under threat from commercial logging, permitted by the Malaysian government. In the 1980s, local people from the Penan and Kelabit ethnic groups began to fight back against the logging, setting up blockades and appealing to international environmental groups for support. Their campaign would make headlines around the world.

Lucy Burns speaks to activist Mutang Urud, who helped organise the blockades and later went on a world tour to attract attention to their cause.

The ginger gene and breast cancer gene

A particular version of the ginger gene MC1R underpins the fiery hair and freckled complexion of redheads, famed and feared in many cultures. But it is also linked to increased pain sensitivity and skin cancer risk. So where did it come from? And are redheads really endangered?

As far back as the 19th Century, doctors realised that some types of cancer seemed to run in families, but it was not until the last decades of the 20th Century that scientists started to pin down the genetic culprits. Faults in two of these genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, significantly increase the chances of developing breast, ovarian or prostate cancer – a fact that hit the headlines when actress Angelina Jolie announced she had had breast removal surgery to try and reduce her risk of BRCA1 related cancer. These genes and others like them are now at the cutting edge of cancer research, leading to revolutionary new treatments for cancer such as the unfortunately-named ‘PARP inhibitors’.

Legal action starts on Brazilian dam collapse

In November 2015, Brazil suffered what is regarded as its worst environmental disaster, the collapse of the Mariana dam. Nearly five years on, a group of more than 200,000 people and organisations, has started legal proceedings in the UK against mining company BHP Biliton. It's alleged that the company failed to act on warnings over the dam. We hear from the BBC's Daniel Gallas and Thomas Goodhead, from the law firm PGMBM, which is representing the claimants. Plus, Nigeria is currently third in terms of the total number of coronavirus cases recorded in Africa. The country came out of lockdown in May, but cases are continuing to rise; we speak to business reporter Kunle Falayi in the former capital Lagos. Plus we hear from the BBC's Zoe Thomas on how a business in California is aiming to hire more workers with sight impairments.

What’s behind a drop in premature births during lockdown?

Early results from potential vaccines against Covid-19 have shown that they do trigger an immune response. Astra Zeneca’s vaccine created by Oxford University and the Ad5 vaccine from China both adapt a harmless virus with a coronavirus “spike protein” which they hope will train the body’s immune system. The Moderna and Pfizer/BioNtech vaccines both inject the coronavirus’s genetic code. The scientists in Oxford hope further trials in Brazil and the US where there are still high levels of infection could help to show if their vaccine could stop people from becoming infected.

During lockdown a doctor in Limerick in Ireland noticed that the number of babies being born very early had dropped dramatically. A similar pattern was noticed in the Danish city of Copenhagen – where the number of babies born before 28 weeks fell by 90%. Now experts across the world want to see whether less stress, lower pollution or less exposure to infectious diseases could play a role.

When did you last swim the sea or take a walk by a lake? Just being in a green space benefits our mental health. But psychologists are now discovering that there is something extra-special about being close to water.

China-US tensions grow deeper

China-US relations become even more tense – we assess why the world's two largest economies are locking horns again, and if it can be resolved any time soon. The world’s most valuable car firm, Tesla, and its enigmatic founder Elon Musk, have managed to stun expectations by continuing financial growth throughout the Covid 19 pandemic. We explore why some companies are banning Black Lives Matters face masks in the workplace. Meanwhile in Thailand, the extended state of emergency – until the end of the month – has confused people as the region has very few cases; we look at the economic woes of those involved. All this is discussed with guests Erin Delmore, a political reporter based in New York, and Patrick Barta, Asia Enterprise Editor of the Wall Street Journal in Bangkok.

The many colours of Raqqa

The untold story of Abood Hamam, perhaps the only photojournalist to have worked under every major force in Syria's war - and lived to tell the tale. At the start of the uprising he was head of photography for the state news agency, SANA, taking official shots of President Assad and his wife Asma by day - and secretly filming opposition attacks by night. Later he defected and returned to his home town, Raqqa, where various rebel groups were competing for control. Other journalists fled when the terrorists of so-called Islamic State (IS) took over, but Abood stayed - and was asked by IS to film its victory parade. He sent pictures of life under IS to agencies all over the world - using a pseudonym. As the bombing campaign by the anti-IS coalition intensified, Abood moved away - but returned later to record the heartbreaking destruction - but also the slow return of life, and colour, to the streets. For months, he roamed through the ruins with his camera, seeing himself as ”the guardian of the city." Raqqa's future is still very uncertain, but Abood now wants everyone to see his pictures, which he posts on Facebook, and know his real name. He hopes the colours he's showing will tempt the thousands of families who've fled Raqqa to return home, and rebuild their lives, and their city.

Tensions escalate between US and China

President Trump has said that it's always possible he may order the closure of further Chinese consulates in the United States - after Beijing was told to close its office in Houston by Friday.

A controversial ‘Coronavirus Law’ has been passed in Israel granting the cabinet sweeping powers to introduce emergency laws without the initial approval of parliament.

Hundreds of Chinese fishing vessels have been operating in North Korean waters, in violation of UN sanctions according to the organization Global Fishing Watch.

Should Joe Biden stay in the basement?

The presidential opposition candidate Joe Biden has barely emerged from his home since America’s lockdown at the end of March. But polls suggest that the low-key strategy is working in his favour – as his rival President Donald Trump comes under increasing pressure over his handling of the coronavirus and a resurgence of racial tension.

With four months to go until the election, is staying in the basement Joe Biden’s best option? What are the risks if he does? And how could Donald Trump turn things around?

TikTok under pressure

Can TikTok survive as a US-based social media platform? The social media app owned by a Chinese company, is prompting suspicion in Washington at the moment. Amidst rising US-China tensions, are suspicions that the company is using spyware justified? James Lewis, a veteran cyber-expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington DC says the administrations doubts are probably unjustified. Louise Matsakis, a staff writer for Wired magazine says all social media platforms in the US need to be more heavily regulated. Plus Zach King, currently the world's third best paid TikToker who has amassed a staggering 41 million followers worldwide tells Ed Butler about how he uses the site to make millions of dollars.

The first safe house for Afghan women

In 2003 the first refuge for women fleeing violence and abuse was opened in Kabul, Afghanistan, a country that has been labelled one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a woman. The UN estimates that over 50% of women in Afghanistan face domestic abuse from their partner in their lifetime. Farhana Haider has been speaking to Mary Akrami who risked her life to help set up and run Afghanistan's first women's safe house.

Tolstoy: War and Peace

'War and Peace' by the Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy charts the story of Russia during the Napoleonic wars of the early 19th century, covering the pandemonium and brutality of the battlefield, as well as the equally intense dramas and loves of several families. It is a monumental novel, tracking the fortunes of dozens of brilliantly drawn individuals, with a cast of more than six hundred characters, both historical and fictional. So why is 'War and Peace' still such a compelling masterpiece, and why did Tolstoy later disown it?

Joining Bridget Kendall are Dr Galina Alexeeva, head of Research at Yasnaya Polyana, Tolstoy’s former country estate in Russia; Andrei Zorin, Professor of Russian at Oxford University and author of a new biography of Tolstoy, and Professor Donna Orwin, author of 'Simply Tolstoy', who’s from the University of Toronto in Canada.

Does comfort food really comfort us?

It’s something many of us intuitively believe - certain foods have the power to make us feel better. But what’s the science behind this, why do we crave certain dishes, and do they provide solace for everyone?

Graihagh Jackson explores what’s really happening when we turn to food for a pick-me-up: psychologist Shira Gabriel explains these foods’ links to memory and social connection; and psychiatrist Lukas Van Oudenhove reveals why so many comfort foods are high in fat or carbohydrates, and how this could be problematic in the long run.

But comfort foods aren’t always comforting - we find out why an unhappy childhood can mean they provide little or no solace. And the concept is far from universal - food writer Jenny Linford says in some food cultures the idea is irrelevant.

Plus, of all the millions of dishes out there, why do some rise to comfort food status? Food writer Kay Plunkett-Hogge explains why rice is the ultimate comfort food for many Thais.

Making movies helped me heal after my dad's murder

Joël Karekezi is a Rwandan director, scriptwriter and producer with a string of awards to his name. His films, such as Imbabazi: The Pardon, and The Mercy of the Jungle, deal with issues around the brutality of conflict and war, but also the possibility of forgiveness and hope. And they are themes that were set in his mind from a very young age. Because when he was a boy, Joël lived through the Rwandan genocide, in which an estimated 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed by extremist Hutu militias. Making films has given Joël a chance to make sense of what he and his family went through during that time.

When Tim Boyle stopped smoking he gained weight, so he decided to start running to keep fit. But he lacked the motivation to do so every day. That's until Michael Wasserman, a friend of Tim's who is in a wheelchair, asked Tim to run for him. Tim and Michael started a charity called I run 4, pairing up people who can't run with keen runners.

Making a Covid-19 vaccine for two billion people

There’s been encouraging news about the Oxford Covid-19 vaccine this week from a trial involving about 1,000 people. But how great is the challenge in scaling up from making a few thousand doses of the vaccine to manufacturing two billion by the end of this year? Sandy Douglas of Oxford’s Jenner Institute explains how they plan to mass-produce the vaccine safely given the speed and magnitude of the scale up.

A new kind of treatment for Covid-19 may come from an unlikely source: llamas and alpacas, the South American relatives of the camel. Camelids produce unusually small and simple antibodies against viruses, including the coronavirus. This feature may make these molecules an effective Covid-19 therapy. Jane Chambers reports on research in Chile and the UK.

Also in the programme: Roland talks to Noah Rose and Lindy McBride of Princeton University about what has made just a few mosquito species evolve a preference for biting humans, and the theory that 800 million years ago. He also talks to Professor Kentaro Terada of Osaka University and David Kring of the Lunar and Planetary Institute in the USA about evidence that the Moon and the Earth were bombarded by a shower of asteroids which plunged the Earth into a global ice age – an event which may have changed the course of the evolution of life.

Law and order has become a key plank of Mr Trump's re-election bid in November. Also: US prosecutors say the Chinese consulate in San Francisco is harbouring a Chinese military researcher who's wanted by the FBI, and the Israeli parliament has voted through the first stage of a draft law which would ban so-called "gay conversion" therapy.

Vipassana: 240 hours of silence

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught by the Buddha more than 2,500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills. The practice died out in India, but survived in Burma, and is now a growing movement around the world.

To learn the technique students complete a 10-day silent retreat, which includes 10 hours of daily meditation. There is no eye contact, no communication, no exercise, no reading or writing, no technology. No distraction from the journey inwards. They must try to overcome the habit of reacting to sensation. By doing so, over 10 days students train themselves to stop reacting to the vicissitudes of life and experience the interconnectedness of all living things.

It is notoriously difficult, but what insights does it afford? What difficulties, both physical and emotional, are faced along the way? We hear the experiences of people who have made it through 240 hours of silence.

Vipassana was popularised by S.N. Goenka, who learnt the technique in Burma from his teacher, Sayagyi U Ba Khin, and in 1969 travelled to India to conduct the first Vipassana course in this tradition outside Burma. There are now around 200 Vipassana meditation centres around the world, attracting people from all walks of life. The course is free, and non-sectarian.

Should tax havens help pay for coronavirus?

While the coronavirus pandemic is raging around the world, discussions over rebuilding the global economy are already underway. Globally, the recovery will cost trillions of dollars. Governments and finance ministries are working around the clock to design financial packages at a time when income from tax has hit rock bottom. There's concern that many governments will have to raise taxes to cope with the shortfall in revenue. But what if they could tap a different source of funding? According to the Tax Justice Network, there are trillions of dollars' worth of cash and other assets tucked away in offshore tax havens belonging to both private individuals and large corporations. Some people are now saying that with the coronavirus crisis, governments can no longer afford to go without the vast amount of tax revenue they lose each year. So, could a small tax on that money fund the global recovery? What challenges need to be overcome to bring together governments and multiple jurisdictions to agree on a framework? Will it be possible to sift through layers of obfuscation to establish the exact amount of money that is held in tax havens – and how will diminishing their prominence change the world? Join Ritula Shah and guests as they discuss whether tax havens should help pay for the pandemic recovery.

It was built as a cathedral 1500 years ago, became a mosque after the Ottoman conquest, and in the 1930s became a museum. Now it's a mosque again, as BBC Turkish journalist and Istanbul resident Esra Yalcinalp reports.

Iran's defiant women singers
Women are banned from singing solo in Iran, and during the past two years at least a dozen have been sentenced to prison for singing in public. BBC World Service Women's Affairs reporter Faranak Amidi tells the story of two singers who faced prison for making music.

Notable banknotes
One side-effect of the Covid-19 pandemic has been a big increase in digital payments. Is it the start of a long goodbye to familiar banknotes? It seemed a good moment to revisit some tales of unusual and surprising banknotes we collected on the Fifth Floor a few years back.

Goldman Sachs settles 1MDB scandal for $3.9bn

It's been called one of the biggest financial frauds in history - $4.5bn were allegedly stolen from Malaysia's state investment fund, 1MDB. Goldman Sachs has now reached a $3.9bn settlement with Malaysia over its role in the scandal and we hear from Bradley Hope of the Wall Street Journal, co-author of "Billion Dollar Whale". Coronavirus has forced Disney to shelve three of this year's biggest film releases, so what will that do to its bottom line? We get the details from Georg Szalai, international business editor at The Hollywood Reporter. Wool prices have nearly halved in just the past two years and coronavirus has added to the industry's woes; Gareth Jones, marketing manager for British Wool, tells us more. The US privatised healthcare system is under pressure like never before because of the pandemic, so is it time to switch to a system of universal health care? The BBC’s Ed Butler has been finding out. (Picture description, Goldman Sachs logo via Getty Images).

Coronavirus conversations: Tokyo Olympics

We hear from people in Japan on the day that was meant to have been the opening of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The event has been postponed by a year because of the coronavirus pandemic. We speak to people who want the Olympics to be cancelled because they are worried that athletes from around the world would spread Covid-19 in Japan. And we hear from athletes who had timed their performance for this Summer but who now have to focus on next year.

And we get your coronavirus questions answered by Dr Megan Murray from Harvard University.

Also today; we speak to women around the world about their responses and reaction to sexism. US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has given a speech rejecting a colleague’s apology after he allegedly used a sexist slur in an argument.

Are some soaps better than others?

These days we’re more acquainted with soap than ever before, as we lather up to help stop the spread of coronavirus. And for CrowdScience listener Sharon, this set off a steady stream of soapy questions: how does soap actually work? How was it discovered in the first place, long before anyone knew anything about germs? Are different things used for washing around the world, and are some soaps better than others?
We set up a CrowdScience home laboratory to explore the soap making process with advice from science-based beauty blogger Dr Michelle Wong, and find out what it is about soap’s chemistry that gives it its germ-fighting superpowers. Soap has been around for at least 4000 years; we compare ancient soap making to modern methods, and hear about some of the soap alternatives used around the world, like the soap berries of India.

And as for the question of whether some soaps are better than others? We discover why antibacterial soaps aren’t necessarily a good idea, and why putting a toy inside a bar of soap might be more important than tweaking its ingredients.

Tensions between the US and China increase as Beijing orders consulate closure

In what’s being seen as a tit-for-tat move, Beijing has revoked its consent for the US consulate in the southwestern city of Chengdu to operate. This comes days after a Chinese mission in Houston was shut down. Also: a doctor in Texas describes the situation in his hospital as ‘terrible’, and what is the legacy of the British Empire in Kenya?
